My major interest in Arctic research is the ecosystem of the Bering Sea and the Chukchi Sea, with a focus on bottom up processes. In collaboration with other scientists we maintain four biophysical moorings on the eastern Bering Sea shelf. and the northern Chukchi Sea Data from these moorings have revealed a marked warming of the southeastern Bering shelf over the last decade. As part of the NOAA's North Pacific Climate Regimes and Ecosystem Study we are investigating how these ecosystems responds to such a regime shift.
